On the Policing Huntingdonshire Facebook page, Cambridgeshire Police said: “Once safely in the care of officers it was clear that these poor dogs were in a terrible condition, and in desperate need of rescue, and not just from the traffic.  

“They are now all safe. 

“This demonstrates that a call to police is always worth it, often there is more going on than meets the eye.  

“This call saved not only a farmer's crops from needless destruction, not only our beautiful native hares from a terrible fate, but also four lovely dogs from a miserable existence.”
